Word – presenting a Mind Map as a linear document

Using Word export you can convert a Mind Map and elements like branch notes into a text document. This abandons the graphic form of the Mind Map and presents content as a linear sequence of information just like in this book.

MindManager can convert Mind-Map content in formatted form into a text, for example, by numbering the branch levels and inserting them as headings in the Word document. You can decide and determine in detail which elements of your Mind Map you wish to export (see Figure 10-11).

The function is useful if you use Mind Maps as a way of pre-structuring and preparing texts, for example, the minutes of meetings or texts. Notes added to a branch then appear in the Word document as continuous text beneath a numbered heading.
